About the Owner

My husband and I moved to Cornwall in 1999 and have been renting Mount Earl as a holiday let since 2001.

We enjoy an outdoor lifestyle on the beautiful Lizard peninsula. We make the most of the wild rugged costal path walks..the lovely unspoilt beaches. Mike particularly enjoys exploring the remote coves on his Kayak and the occasional fishing trip.

We have many guests returning to Mount Earl and we have made lots of good friends over the years.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Mount Earl in October was just wonderful, but much to short......the house , the garden and the surrounding landscape are , what we call in Germany wild-romantic and far from hectic and bustle, exactly my taste.....This time we explored some more of the area with Falmouth as my personal favourite.

There would be a lot more to tell about, but I would just like to strongly recommend a stay at Mount Earl !!!

We hope to come back for another, hopefully longer stay.

Thanks Sue & Mike



We spent a wonderful week at Mount Earl. Mike&Sue are very friendly and helpful. They welcomed us with cream tea and good Cornish beer. The big garden was fun for the children. We can highly recommend this cottage to everyone! It is really quiet, the cottage is well-equipped and surrounded by such a beautiful nature. Plus, it is just a short way to see many beautiful spots of Cornwall!!!



It was a really relaxing week in Mount Earl. Located perfectly for short and long walks along the Cost

Further Details:

Coverack has a village shop and post office with cash machine, gift shops restaurants, fish and chip shop and friendly local pub [The Paris Hotel] with a beer garden overlooking the sea and surrounding coastline. The Cornish coastline is infamous for many ship wrecks, in fact the Paris Hotel was built in the late 1800's from the wreck of the SS Paris which went down in Coverack bay. From the harbour you can watch the fishing boats come and go or try your hand at fishing from the sea wall.

St Keverne has two pubs serving good food, a local shop, post office, newsagent, bakery and butcher. Just beyond St Keverne is Polkerris where diving trips are available to ship wrecks and the infamous Mannacle Rocks the place where many ships have been wrecked in centuries past.

The market town of Helston has some of the major supermarkets, banks and a wide range of shops which is approx 11 miles away. The popular Flambards Experience is also in Helston - a great day out for children and adults alike.

The Poldark Mine at Wendron just outside Helston is well worth a visit to experience what it was like to work underground in the old days.

The fishing village of Porthleven is 13 miles away where fishing trips are

available. There are also numerous sea food restaurants and a lovely old fashioned pub called The Ship Inn renowned for smuggling in the old days overlooking the harbour. Fresh crab and lobster is often available in this pretty

village, as well as fish and chips and Cornwall's famous pasties.

Just a few miles on down the coast is Prussia Cove where the infamous smuggler - John Carter [nick-named the King of Prussia] operated from.

The quaint village of Mousehole is approx 30 miles away where you can exlpore the tiny narrow streets to find art galleries, shops and restaurants. A few miles on is Lamorna Cove where you drive down through a beautiful wooded valley - perhaps you can stop at the' Lamorna Wink' pub where many a smuggling deal was done!

Facilities

From the Owner

Mount Earl is situated a quarter of a mile from the nearest public lane, offering a high degree of privacy and seclusion.Set within 32 acres of private woodland/heath nature lovers can enjoy the unusual flora and fauna. Recently, the woodland has revealed the ruins of an ancient mill close to the pretty Downas stream.It is only a 20 minute rugged walk to an unspoilt secluded cove where seals and basking sharks have been spotted. The south west coast path is close by, incorporating the breathtaking vantage point of Black Head and far reaching views towards England's most southerly point. The pretty fishing village of Coverack is approx. 2 miles away, where there is a lovely sandy beach, village shops, cafes and pub serving local seafood.
